    Hi there, my old feedback thread is visible at http://www.head-fi.org/t/407556/leeperry

    Got these two vintage orthos seeking new home(s) because at the end of the day I still really only got two ears.

    Seeking trades for closed phones, headamps, cables, fancy RCA plugs such as KLEI, USB tweaks, DAC's but feel free to make me buy/trade offers and we'll see. I got shipping addresses both in the US & EU. I'll ship anywhere and will happily declare these as $10 used goods.

    1) Yamaha HP-1 in black box, the rare anisotropic version:

    It just spent the last +40 years in its box, earpads didn't age well and headband got a little crushed but I will provide the perfect replacement earpads you can see.

    It's the more efficient using stronger magnets later version of HP-1, basically a more focused clearer-sounding and bassier YH-1 as it's using anisotropic magnets exactly like YH-100. Never been disassembled and both drivers are 1 Ohm matched. If you like YH-1 this thing will rock your world :)


    2) Fostex T20 aka T20v1:

    Missing both badges and also a screw on one side but it doesn't really budge, might as well find a replacement or blacktack it, fully working, no funny smell, no stereo mistracking, unmodded, I can provide a brand new unused pair of HPAEC550 earpads and it'll be as good as new: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005OM4EQA

    Very high bang/bucks, typical ortho sound, this one is not to be missed IMO.
